Chasing the Prophecy review

Well, I'd written up this nice, glowing review and then Goodreads ate it. And now, of course, the words appear to be gone from my head forever. Suffice it to say that this book, this entire series, is amazing. Chasing the Prophecy is the perfect...

Seeds of Rebellion review

I loved the first book in this series and I'm glad the sequel didn't disappointment me. Seeds of Rebellion is a fantastic sequel that only made me more excited to read the third book. I think I'll do this review list-style since I enjoyed most...

Island of Fire review

When I started reading this one, I thought it would be the last. I'm sad I didn't get all the answers I was expecting, but in the end I'm glad McMann didn't try to rush the rest of the story to fit into a trilogy format. A series this epic...

Breadcrumbs review

Breadcrumbs was a very enjoyable read for me. It kept me engaged and I managed to finish it quicker than most things I've been reading lately, so that's certainly something. First of all, I love the illustration of Hazel on the cover and the fact that it...

House of Hades review

Really, Percy Jackson books (yes, I'm lumping Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus together) will always be my favorite. The House of Hades certainly didn't disappoint. There was plenty of adorable Percabeth. That whole Nico revelation blew my mind in the best possible way (I could...

Execution

A good ending to the series. I actually teared up a little when Alex saw Simon and Donavon on the hill. I found the whole "stranger" side of the story to be an interesting and satisfying explanation to it all. I also liked seeing Alex go through the whole process....

Fugitives review

So, I've made it to book four. I don't really have a lot to say about it since I feel pretty much the same way about it as I have the others. I must say that Alex's storyline is getting a little out of hand, but I'll admit Smith isn't...

The Boy Book review

This was a cute, quick read, but I didn't love it quite as much as I did the first one. Ruby annoyed me a little. I suppose my main issue is that she kind of blew off the guy I thought she should be with...

The Uprising review

I'm not sure if I just wasn't in the mood or if this sequel just didn't work for me. There's nothing in particular that I could point out, but I found myself just kind of bored throughout. I can't remember how I felt about...

172 Hours on the Moon audiobook review

What a ride this book was. I spent most of the time reading with my heart racing and a great sense of unease. I ended up finishing at 2 in the morning and had to keep my bedside lamp on in order to sleep. I didn't find the ending particularly...

Cloaked audiobook review

Cloaked is a fairly average read (or listen, as it may be). It was good for what I needed (a light read after the tear-jerkers and pulse-pounders I've read lately), but that's about it. The plot was pretty predictable and the romance was a little cheesier than I would've liked...

Pretty Girl 13 audiobook review

Damn, what a book. I almost didn't even read this because the cover is a little off-putting. It reminds of the Fear Street covers, and while I enjoyed reading those when I was younger, I don't exactly think of them as great literature. So I'm really...

Death Sentence review

Another win for Mr. Smith. There was a definite shift from the usual story with Death Sentence. Alex isn't trying to escape the prison anymore (well, not for a large portion of the story anyway) and is instead fighting a battle within himself. ...

City of Ashes review

Well, I'm not really sure what to say. I didn't enjoy City of Ashes quite as much as City of Bones, but I was still sucked in by the story. While I'm not a huge fan of Clary, I like many of the other characters so it...
